Leaning on Cold

It appears that what is usually prime time for transitional weather is giving us less heat and just leaning on the cold side of things. But seriously, where are the days where you can finally say to yourself that spring is in the air?!

This time of year - APRIL - is usually joyful for so many reasons, like finally being able to walk outside with an open coat (and probably needing to remove said open coat due to warm afternoon rays), the divine smell in the air, and feeling a breeze that actually feels mild and soft. There has been none of this thus far, friends. And I'm starting to lose hope.

Saturday Mood Board

A day late, but this week's mood board has finally landed. The mood being ambivalent for a number of reasons: one, I have been sick all week and it has continued through the weekend, and two, that winter just won't quit and it's been really driving me insane. I'm sure I'm not the only one. If you live in the Northeast, there's no doubt that you hate Mother Nature right now. And all you Californians, may you forever be the object of my jealousy.

Neck Accoutrement

As you may or may not know, I'm not one for big statement jewelry and accessories. I don't like overbearing necklaces, heavier-than-thou earrings and would never feel like myself sporting an arm party.

I do, however, enjoy myself a fun silk neck scarf. This one is a vintage Liberty of London number bought by my mom in the 70s and I use it to spruce up any plain look. It's served me well over the years and now even more so that the 70s are back in action.

Ready to Rumble

Totally realize that I look like I'm about to go fight in the ring (what ring you ask? Good question.) and I kind of like it. I blame this awesome recent Zara purchase (total Valentino knockoff, I know, head in shame). You guys know how I love to play with proportions and I've always has a particular penchant for loose tops, so here you have it. They best part: it's an outfit composed of navy and black. I realize that the colors aren't exactly contrasting in these photos, but trust that this awesome structured linen tunic is as navy as they come.

Real Life Mood Board

There's nothing I love more on Sundays than to sleep in, make brunch, cuddle with my boys and then do something productive around the house. I have an ongoing to-do list of things that I need to get done -- work-related tasks notwithstanding -- and I tend to try to check things off of that list on Sundays. It truly is the best way to transition into Mondays.

For example, today I unpacked from my Cali trip, I broke a personal laundry record (6 loads, my friends. My husband said I was like 14 year-old boy, ha), I washed all my makeup brushes, I paid some bills and finally put up the burlap cork boards I ordered off Etsy a few weeks back and got to sorting through my springtime inspiration. Below is the progress and the final result. Super fun, highly recommend getting one of these! Who doesn't love to kick it old school with live in the flesh Pinterest boards?

Saturday Mood Board

Back in New York and greeted with the shittiest of spit rains. Leaving a place filled with warmth and sunshine to go back to weather that makes you want to commit suicide (that may or may not be a slight exaggeration) is kind of tough so we're taking it easy today. Just chilling on the couch, catching up on our Jimmy Fallons and doing indoor stuff. As you'll be able to tell by this mood board (and pretty much by everything I write on this blog), I've got spring on the brain. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
